    Integration in a residency scholarship curriculum: Successes and challenges in a family medicine program
    (Medical Library Association, 2024-05-20) Stumpff, Julia C; Vetter, Cecelia J; Delbridge, Emilee J
    In early 2020, a Family Medicine (FM) faculty member reached out to request library instruction for second-year residents (PGY2) working on scholarly projects. Tailored library sessions were integrated into the second-year residency curriculum. Two years after implementing this program, 23 residents were surveyed to understand what residents learned and what training they still needed to assist them with their scholarly projects. Librarians and the FM faculty member then added citation management content to the curriculum. A research study to measure the impact of the library interventions on resident’s library research skills was piloted. Pre-test data showed that the FM residents lacked knowledge in locating library resources and were not comfortable with citation management tools. Post-test data showed that most residents were clearer about where to search for sources for their research, were more comfortable using citation managers, and better understood how to use Boolean terms.

    I’m Rooting for You: Cultivating Relationships with Graduate Student Workers
    (2024-05-02) Connell, Nicole; Hall, Danielle; Lebovitz, Sarah; Pieczko, Brandon T.; Vaughan, Benna
    The current GLAM hiring culture is competitive and increasingly experience driven—students are expected to graduate from their master’s programs with varied practical experiences in addition to theoretical knowledge and familiarity with best practices in the field. What opportunities exist for both full-time and part-time students to gain these experiences, and how can practitioners help without overextending themselves? What work goes into supervising and collaborating with students? In this roundtable discussion, panelists will examine the various aspects of collaborations between professionals and student workers in archives. Hear examples from archives professionals who make space for library and archives students to gain hands-on, project-based, educational experiences that benefit their own institutions, their partner organizations, and above all, the student participants. Learn about advocating for and acquiring funding for student positions and the types of projects students complete during internships and practicum experiences, and gain insight into how practical work experience supports and supplements classroom curricula. When strong relationships exist between universities and professional archivists, students can enter the field as well-rounded,confident professionals with the experiences and peer support systems necessary to secure full-time employment.

    Decision fatigue in hospital medicine: A scoping review
    (The Society for Hospital Medicine, 2024-04) Jones, Sarah; Perry, Kelsey; Stumpff, Julia C; Kruer, Rachel; Czosnowski, Lauren; Kara, Areeba
    BACKGROUND: Decision fatigue describes the erosion of decision-making capacity as a consequence of the repeated acts of decision making. The phenomenon has been detected in ambulatory settings with higher rates of inappropriate antimicrobial and opiate prescribing and lower rates of cancer screening associated with appointments that occur later in the day. As hospital medicine is acknowledged to be a cognitively intense specialty, we decided to explore decision fatigue in hospital medicine. METHODS: As a relatively unexplored concept, we undertook a scoping review to understand what is known about decision fatigue in hospital medicine. All studies including healthcare workers in acute care settings and exploring the concepts of decision fatigue, cognitive burden and/or fatigue were included. Conceptually related studies of sleep deprivation, shift work, Circadian disruption, and excessive workloads with actual or theoretical paths of causality related to patient outcomes were also included. RESULTS: Our preliminary search revealed fifteen studies that met our inclusion criteria. No study specifically included hospitalists. Most studies described the concept among nurses, residents, and/or emergency department physicians. The outcomes studied were diverse and included self reported perceptions (e.g. perceived impact on patient care) and validated scales to measure fatigue and psychomotor performance. Fewer studies investigated clinical decisions such as the use of consultations, imaging and disposition decisions through the emergency department. Mitigating circumstances such as age, experience, responsibilities outside the hospital (e.g. having children) were infrequently described. CONCLUSIONS: While hospital medicine's fast pace, multitasking, fragmentation between clinicians and interruptions make it susceptible to decision fatigue, the concept remains under-explored in hospital medicine. The lack of consistent terminology complicates the evaluation of a phenomenon which ultimately is the culmination of individual, patient, work system and work environment factors. There is a need to detect and defuse the impact of decision fatigue in hospital medicine.

    Predictive Factors Influencing Internal Rotation Following Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty
    (Elsevier, 2023) Luster, Taylor G.; Dean, Robert S.; Trasolini, Nicholas A.; Eichinger, Josef K.; Parada, Stephen A.; Ralston, Rick K.; Waterman, Brian R.; Ruth Lilly Medical Library, School of Medicine
    Introduction Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) is increasingly utilized as a treatment modality for various pathologies. The purpose of this review is to identify preoperative risk factors associated with loss of IR following RSA. Methods A systematic review was conducted using preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analyses (PRISMA) guidelines. Ovid MEDLINE, OVID Embase and Scopus were queried. The inclusion criteria were: English language, minimum one-year follow-up postoperatively, study published after 2012, minimum of ten patients in a series, surgery was RSA for any indication, IR is explicitly reported. The exclusion criteria were: full text was unavailable, unable to be translated to English, follow-up < one year, case reports or series of less than ten cases, review articles, tendon transfers were performed at the time of surgery, the procedure performed was not RSA, and the range of motion in IR was not reported. Results The search yielded 3,792 titles, and 1,497 duplicate records were removed before screening. Ultimately, 16 studies met inclusion criteria with a total of 5124 patients that underwent RSA. Three studies found that poor preoperative functional IR served as a significant risk factor for poor postoperative IR. Eight studies addressed the impact of subscapularis with four reporting no difference in IR based on subscapularis repair, and four reporting significant improvements with subscapularis repair. Additionally, two studies reported that BMI negatively affected IR, while two showed it had no impact. Preoperative opioid use was found to negatively affect IR. Other studies showed that glenoid retroversion, component lateralization and individualized component positioning affected postoperative IR. Discussion/Conclusion: This study found that preoperative IR, individualized implant version, preoperative opioid use, increased glenoid lateralization were all found to have a significant impact on IR following RSA. Studies that analyzed the impact of subscapularis repair and BMI reported conflicting results.

    Interventions to support medical trainee well-being when dealing with patient death: a scoping review protocol
    (BMJ, 2023-06-08) Ibrahim, Halah; Vetter, Cecelia J.; West, Kelsey; Alsoud, Leen Oyoun; Sorrell, Sara; Ruth Lilly Medical Library, School of Medicine
    Introduction: Existing literature demonstrates that medical students and residents experience complex emotions and substantial grief after patient deaths. Over time, this can lead to burnout and depression and adversely impact patient care. In response, medical schools and training programmes worldwide have developed and implemented interventions to help medical trainees to better cope with patient deaths. This manuscript provides a scoping review protocol that aims to systematically identify and document the published research reporting on the implementation or delivery of interventions to support medical students and residents/fellows in dealing with patient death. Methods and analysis: A scoping review will be conducted following the Arksey-O'Malley five-stage scoping review method and the Scoping Review Methods Manual by the Joanna Briggs Institute. English language interventional studies published through 21 February 2023, will be identified in the following databases: MEDLINE, Scopus, Embase, Psych Info, Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, CINAHL and ERIC. Two reviewers will screen titles and abstracts and then independently screen full-text articles for inclusion. Two reviewers will assess the methodological quality of included studies using the Medical Education Research Study Quality Instrument. After extraction, data will be narratively synthesised. Experts in the field will be consulted to ensure the feasibility and relevance of the findings. Ethics and dissemination: Ethical approval is not required as all data will be collected from published literature. The study will be disseminated through publication in peer-reviewed journals and presentation at local and international conferences.

    Except for my commute, everything is the same: the shared lived experience of health sciences libraries during the COVID-19 pandemic
    (Medical Library Association, 2022) Ragon, Bart; Whipple, Elizabeth C.; Rethlefsen, Melissa L.; Ruth Lilly Medical Library, School of Medicine
    Objective: To understand the experience of academic health sciences libraries during the pandemic using a phenomenological approach. Methods: This study used a multisite, mixed-method approach to capture the direct experience of academic health sciences libraries as they evolved during the COVID-19 pandemic. Phase one of the study involved administering a qualitative survey to capture to capture current evolutions of programs and services. The survey for phases two (August 2020) and three (February 2021) contained eight questions asking participants to share updates on their evolution and experiences. Results: Qualitative data were analyzed using open coding techniques to ensure emergent themes were allowed to surface. Additional post-hoc sentiment analysis ascertained the frequency of positive and negative words in each data set. Of the 193 possible AAHSL libraries, 45 (23.3%) responded to the April 2020 survey, 26 to the August 2020 survey, and 16 to the February 2021 survey. Libraries represented 23 states and the District of Columbia. The majority of libraries closed in March 2020. The ease of transferring library services to a remote environment varied by type of service. For the quantitative analysis, ten distinct areas were analyzed using text coded as “Staff” as a lens for understanding the connection between codes. Conclusion: Innovations by libraries during the early stages of the pandemic are having a long-term impact on library culture and the delivery of services. Even as libraries returned to in-person services, elements of telecommuting, using online conferencing software, safety precautions, and monitoring of staff well-being persisted.
